lyrics

I had a job that almost paid the bills
It was completely deprived of excitement and thrills
But there was this one time, the copier caught on fire
I extended a pause before I put it out
Enough time for the cubicle jockeys to shout
Grab some water you asshole or we're all gonna die

You asked what I've been doing with my time
I'm just pissin’ away the best years of my life

Took a little time off to grow my hair
Which has diminished all my chances of becoming the mayor
Coupled with the fact, my papers were improperly filed
Do with that information what you will
It's too hard to roll a boulder up a big ol' hill
Just tuck it in your pocket or roll it 'round the other side

You asked what I've been doing with my time
I'm just pissin’ away the best years of my life

We spend a mountain of minutes over many days
Worried about nothing just for something to say
But nobody needs those noisy neighbors in the back of their mind
You only ever get a satisfaction guarantee
When your pizza is late, might get the next one for free
So ignore all your troubles and almost everything should work out fine
